Have a Heart

This frosted recycled glass plate gives new meaning to the phrase "home is where the heart is." With each purchase, $2 are donated to benefit Pittsburgh Habitat for Humanity, which brings community volunteers together to build affordable housing for low-income families. This plate will bring a beautiful, understated artistic touch to any table and remind you of the importance of home and heart. Copper charger plate shown below heart plate is sold separately. Handcrafted in Pennsylvania, each plate is hand cut from pre-consumer/ post-industrial recycled glass, then color is hand screened onto the glass. The plates are fired and sandblasted for texture. Each plate comes with a certificate about the "Plates With PurposeTM program.

Mary Irwin-Scott

Since 2005, Plates With Purpose has raised awareness for and donated over $150 thousand dollars to twelve non-profit organizations. Founded by Mary Irwin-Scott, President of the Riverside Design Group, it's a family-oriented company that takes community service very seriously. Irwin-Scott's daughter and Riverside Creative Director, Cassandra Ott, frequently collaborates with her mother and father, as well as Pittsburgh architect, Grant Scott, to design plates for various agencies and causes. Some Riverside beneficiaries have included the AIDS Task Force & Persad Center, Pittsburgh's Habitat for Humanity, and Court Appointed Special Advocates, a volunteer organization that helps abused and neglected children. Artist Judy Smilow also lent her design to benefit the Alzheimer's Association and honor her father after his long struggle with the disease. Each product in the Plates With Purpose line is simple, clean and inspiring, adding a delicate touch to any table and community awareness to the home. collection

        It was perfect for me to be able to give such a wonderful wedding gift to a friend that lives abroad. Even though I couln´t be there on their big day I could send my greetings with the present.

        I got so much help when I ordered it (I called the support), because it was a few things to think about when ordering it from europe. Thanks!

          Comments about PLATES WITH PURPOSE - HEART PLATTER:

          I have given "plates with purpose" as a gift twice now and both recipients LOVED the plates. They were equally touched by the beauty of the gift itself and the fact that a portion of proceeds goes to a charitable organization. While I have not yet seen the plates myself, the people I gave them to assure me that they are quite nice ... very attractive and great for entertaining as well as a display piece with a story.

            I bought this for a friend and her husband as a wedding gift this spring. They loved it, and I loved the fact that it was tied to Habitat for Humanity. Perfect wedding gift, for sure!

            I was amazed by how quickly it was shipped. My friend got it earlier than I even expected.

            I purchased this platter for a wedding gift for my brother and sister-in-law. They like to entertain and I thought it would be useful, a good conversation piece and beautiful!

            They loved not only its beauty, but the fact it gives back.

            Our only concern was how delicate it is. Careful handling is a must.

              These dishes are absolutely beautiful! I love them, and they really were very "me"! I'm actually giving them as gifts, and I can't wait to see my mom's face when she sees it!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery of them was very prompt, but the first delivery was in pieces!!! However, when I called Uncommon Goods, they immediately shipped them out again, and they arrived perfectly within a day or two! I was so excited to get them! Customer service rocked!

                  I bought this as a Valentine's Day present for my aspiring actress daughter and her aspiring actor boyfriend. They were truly overwhelmed and are still talking about it weeks later. We all love Uncommon Goods.
